    Is it fair that American taxpayers...

    Is it fair that American taxpayers must work part of the year for Israel, Palestine and the terrorist state of Saudi Arabia?

    What do we get in return besides grief?

    I don't work and never have worked for either of those countries so I don't understand your question???

    Are you an American taxpayer? If you are then you work part of the year for these people. Welcome to slavery.

    So we cannot have freedom without supporting these people? Seems counterintuitive to me.

    We don't live in a vacuum. We have to spend money in the interest of national security.

    Even when we give to starving countries. They become easy victims of takeover by tyrants and dictators if they are starving.

    If our freedom relies on the world being nice and doing what we want. We are screwed.

    So where is the proof that giving money to these nations has actually benefited the United States. Will you use the same rational as Obama. It would be worse if we didn't act. Come on. We've been involved in this region for a long time. What has changed?

    Helping others in need is all fine and good. Americans, as individuals, do this every day. This political crap in the middle east is neither humanitarian nor necessary. As far as "national security" goes. I ask which nation and who's security? I tell ya we are the biggest suckers in the world. Duped into paying for every conflict or crisis.

    I do not approve of us giving aid to any of those countries, but I take part in the election process to help pick our leaders. In that way, it is partly my fault, as well as every one elses.

    If you think we should not be involved with these countries, run for office or help in a campaigne for a candidate who shares your view. Push for policy changes.
